9780801883231: John Hawkwood: An English Mercenary in Fourteenth-Century Italy
Review:

Caferro's archival research in England and throughout northern and central Italy has given us a firm historical picture of a mercenary who during his lifetime was already becoming the stuff of legend. Unlike King Arthur and Robin Hood, Hawkwood was a historical figure about whom there was a great deal that really could be discovered, and Caferro has done the discovering. This is a readable book that is broadly informative about warfare and its techniques immediately after the Hundred Years' War and an outstanding work of scholarship.

(William J. Connell, Seton Hall University)

Engaging book... Caferro has made sense of the life of a mercenary captain, who during his career influenced diplomacy, altered finances, and changed lives in fourteenth-century Italy.

(Duane Osheim Renaissance Quarterly)

A model of clear writing and an authoritative treatment of the military and political situation in Italy from the 1360s.

(John E. Law History)

It is... so well written and provides such a gripping account of John Hawkwood and his milieu that it will surely gain a wide audience among general readers as well.

(David S. Bachrach Historian)

The depth of Caferro's archival research has established him as Hawkwood's preeminent biographer.

(Dane Swango Comitatus)

Meets a real need... well researched and clearly presented, an important work for everyone interested in fourteenth-century Italy and medieval war.

(John Larner English Historical Review)

Superb biography... Sterling piece of work.

(Niccolò Capponi Journal of Military History)

This is much more than a biography in the ordinary sense of the word... An excellent contribution to our understanding of both the mercenary phenomenon and the history of Italy in the late fourteenth century.

(John France Speculum)

A useful read for anyone interested in Renaissance Italy, the evolution of the practice of war, and even the interrelationship of art and society.
